The National Association for Gifted Children (NAGC) says, “Gifted individuals are those who demonstrate outstanding levels of aptitude (defined as an exceptional ability to reason and learn) or competence (documented performance or achievement in top 10 percent or rarer) in one or more domains. Domains include any structured area of activity with its own symbol system (e.g., mathematics, music, language) and/or set of sensorimotor skills (e.g., painting, dance, sports).”

Applying for College, Year by Year

Graduation is just four short years away for your child who just entered high school, and you may be wondering what you can do now to help your student get into college.
